Nina Kavardjikova was brought up in the folklore traditions of her mother’s family village in Northern Bulgaria, started dancing and performing on stage at the age of 7, later became a professional dancer and toured the world as a soloist with the Bulgarian Trakia State Folklore Ensemble. She graduated with honors from the Academy of Music, Dance, and Fine Arts in Plovdiv as a choreographer, dance director and pedagogue, and worked with Trakia State Folk Ensemble, her own group Aegis and many performing dance ensembles in Bulgaria. Later, she was a professor in Bulgarian Folklore and Dance at the Academy of Music, Dance, and Fine Arts. Folklore research has been a major part of her work throughout the years. Her continuous interest is in Bulgarian ethnic dance and music, traditions and rituals, history and religion, costumes and instruments. Between 1992 and 1999 she has lived and worked in the USA, and since 1999 resides in The Netherlands. Nina has been a featured guest teacher at many professional and recreational venues in USA, Canada, The Netherlands, UK and Germany. She organizes culture and rural tourism groups to Bulgaria.
